Blurbs are a nice and popular way to show the features of your products or services. They appear as columns that include a short text and an icon. The page designer lets you create them very easily using the blurb module.
Go to the page designer, and add a new module by clicking on the gray plus sign. Choose the blurb module from the list. If you prefer to find the module automatically, it’s also possible to type it in the search bar on top.
The contents tab includes the following options.
This is where you can define the title of the blurb, that will appear above the text, and the body content of the module. The text will span the entires width of the column.
Image & Icon
You can decide whether you want to use an icon, picking one from the list, or an image for your blurb. You can upload the image from your media gallery, that will be centered and span the entire width of the column.
You can connect a link to the title of the blurb that will open when clicked.
If you want that the module opens a new URL when someone clicks on it, paste that link here and decide if the link will open in the same window or tab.
Add a background color, gradient, image or video to your module.
You can modify the module’s label for easier identification.
Customize the design
With these settings, you can customize your design.
Image & Icon
Choose where you wish to place your image/icon. It can appear on top or to the left of the text. Placing it on the left will make the icon/image smaller than if it’s placed on top of the text.
If you selected an icon you can define its color, if you want it to be a circle and the icon font size. If you picked an image it’s possible to define the corners, borders, shadow, and tonality.
Control how your text is displayed in terms of alignment, color (dark or light), and text shadow.
Define the font, color, alignment, line height, and other settings for the title.
You can also adjust the font settings for the body text.
Adjust the width of the module.
Customize margins and padding sizes.
Define the border’s corner, style, color and width for your module.
Here you can enable box shadow.
Adjust the hue of the module as a whole.
Give an animation style to the module, like fading or sliding when it appears.
Using this tab you are able to insert CSS code, select device visibility, and manage transitions. Check this guide to know more about how to use these settings. On the attributes option, you can also define an image alt text.
For this example, we are creating blurbs for the benefits of using a certain product.
We start by creating a row with four columns. Then, we add the first blurb, using an icon. For the design, we use the following options:
Icon Color: #000000
Icon Circle Color: #eeefa0
Icon Placement: top
Text Orientation: center
Title Text Font Weight: bold
Title Text Color: #0c71c3
Title Text Size: 20px
Then we copy it to the other columns, adjusting the text and icon.
This is how it looks like!
